Welch, with acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Fats Kaplin and
Lucas Kane on drums & percussion.
Their sixth Australian tour since 1999 follows their success on
the U.S. Americana Music Charts, where their current album “Lost
John Dean” finished 2006 as the No. 4 album of the year, above
even Bruce Springsteen’s Pete Seeger Sessions album, which their

everyone from Emmylou Harris, George Jones & Tammy Wynette to Alan
Jackson – whose No.1 smash hit “I’ll go on loving you” was penned
Kevin likewise has a similar songwriting profile, with his songs
being recorded by artists as diverse as The Highwaymen, Trisha
Yearwood, Ricky Skaggs and Garth Brooks. Following his third duo
Australian tour with Kieran in 2001, Kevin visited our shores
twice, with his 2002 tour being captured on the recent “live” CD
release “Live, down here on Earth” recorded at The Basement in
Sydney with brilliant roots band The Flood, who then joined Kevin
for his October 2003 tour, during which the Sydney concert was
filmed for DVD release. “Plenty of Time – “live” is out now on
